Lech has good nursery slopes, and with expert tuition from the ski school’s highly qualified instructors, your mini-Maiers will soon be progressing from snowplough to parallel turns, schussing and 127th place in the 2026 Winter Olympics downhill.

Three quarters of the remaining slopes are suitable for beginners or intermediates, and for snowboarders there's a snowpark with special terrain and jumps.

For the youngest, Lech has a Miniclub featuring an on-slope kindergarten and a junior ski school where children can build snowmen, hone their snowball-making technique and get their first taste of skiing, leaving parents to enjoy the 150 miles of pistes in the Arlberg area, including the famous White Ring ski tour to nearby Zürs and back. Kids get a chance to show off their new skills at a weekly ski race.

Lech itself is a picturesque Tyrolean village which has retained much of its traditional character. Besides skiing, Lech offers plenty of other options for keeping young minds entertained, including ice-skating, guided snow-shoeing, horse-drawn sleigh rides, a traditional Christmas market and watching deer being fed in the nearby forest.

Where to go

Lech Valley bridge


The resort of Lech is regarded as one of the most exclusive resorts in Austria. Despite the luxurious feel, Lech clings charmingly to its farming origins and remains a traditional alpine village.

Alpine church in Austria


We know there’s more to this Middle European gem than skiing, but when the resorts on offer are of the quality of St Anton, Kitzbuhel and Lech, it’s hard not to focus on them

Where to stay



Kristiania is a small, luxurious ski hotel, conveniently located just five minutes from the lifts to take you to the slopes.
